November is National Hospice Month!
Come join our partners at Howard County Community Hospice & Regional Health Services of Howard County for a grief group. We understand how important mental health is, and how the upcoming holidays can make coping with these hard situations more difficult. No matter the situation, these groups will help you by providing a "safe space for questions, answers, and sharing". Dates for the upcoming groups include:
Tuesday, Dec 5th at 5:30pm (Cresco Library)
Thursday, Dec 7th at 2:30pm (Wellington Place)
Monday, Dec 11th at 6:30pm (Wellington Place)
A Donation for ERASE
In April the ERASE Coalition received a generous donation from Christian Mosbo. Christian is one of the devoted members of ERASE who are focused on “creating a healthier Winneshiek County through community collaboration”. His donation is greatly appreciated and will benefit many!
High school youth work on many initiatives to prevent and end alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. Their efforts—such as Red Ribbon Week, the Great American Smokeout, Drug Facts Week, Through with Chew Week, and Kick Butts Day—promote awareness and education among their peers and community.
